California Redwoods

I like the snow… but after a while enough is enough, so here’s a little break (even for those that don’t need it):



We’ve featured panoramas from this area of California before, and we probably will again, as I can never get enough of it!

On a separate note, some of you may have noticed our panoramas were not displaying correctly (as in not at all) for about a day last week.  The software glitch is now fixed!

I hope you enjoy this latest addition; please share if you do!



Old Growth Redwoods

Rockefeller Forest in Humboldt County, California, is the largest remaining old growth redwood forest in the world:




This is a forest left in its natural state as much as possible, so fallen giants are plentiful.  The redwoods in these forests are coastal redwoods, which grow taller than giant sequoias but not as wide, and are found along the coastal fog belt of California and into Oregon.  With an average lifespan of 500-700 years, these trees can live to 2000 years.

Thanks for viewing!

A Non Utah Panorama!

It may be hard to believe, but the invisible force-field which apparently keeps me in Utah shooting panoramas seems to have experienced a power failure, and this is the result:



Years ago I was lucky enough to marry a girl from Northern California’s redwood country, and have been visiting these woods ever since.  I’ve ended up with a small collection of panoramas from these forests which I’ll be sharing in the coming months.  We’re setting up a separate website to house outside-of-Utah panoramas, so you will notice some 360s under the URL
